Microsoft Word 2007 and other higher editions of Word files are created with .docx format and they are in the zipped collection of mostly XML files. The text of MS Word .docx files is stored in one file called document.xml which is found in the Word folder of the zipped document. At times a partially corrupted document.xml file will prevent a .docx file from opening. And there are many other reasons due to which a .docx file can be lost or deleted.

Causes for Word DOCX document deletion

Microsoft Word DOCX files usually get deleted/lost due to accidental deletion of the file or the folder containing .docx file. Formatting the drive/partition unintentionally will also wipe the DOCX documents saved on the drive. The documents can also be deleted or lost due to virus attack, sudden shut down of the system, improper termination of the MS Word application properly, interrupted file transfer, and so on. Check out the steps to retrieve files lost after re-formatting drive partitions.

Remember this!!

An important thing to note here is to stop copying or creating a new file on the storage drive because it might overwrite the drive space that still holds the deleted or lost DOCX files.
